Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest silver ring; it weighs 71.680 kg (158.03 lbs) and has an inner diameter of 85 cn (2 ft 9 in). It consists of 97.83percent pure silver and was created by Amin & Company (Pakistan).
It took a full year to carve the World's First All-Diamond Ring, which has been copyrighted and is expected to sell for $70 million.
"A ring made entirely of a faceted diamond has always seemed like a fantasy," said Mohamed Shawish, president of Geneva-based Shawish Jewellery.
"To create the perfect diamond ring is the epitome of art."
Shawish said it took a year to get the copyright for the design and then the company had to purchase a special laser to cut the diamond into the perfect circle for the band.
